Basic Brown, Basic Blue


Published 1969


Ever wonder how Matt Groening of 'The Simpsons' got his quirky sense of humor? Probably from his filmmaker dad, Homer Groening, who passed away in 1996. Although known for his documentaries, Homer Groening directed and narrated this film, ostensibly about color, but filled with an ongoing series of bikini-clad bathing beauties. The film is perhaps best viewed as a graphic artifact that will interest media historians seeking additional insight into the elements that influenced the cartoonist.


Run time 10 min.
Producer Homer Groening

reminiscent of Bruce Brown's Endless Summer. Hunter S Thompson comes to mind as well. Worth watching.
